Presentation and Objectives
Technology is increasingly impacting fundamental services of our society, like communications and transportation. Such systems are critical: their failures may cause harm to people or huge economic losses. The research area of testing and fault tolerance aims to develop theories and techniques for the construction of dependable computer systems. The Workshop on Testing and Fault Tolerance (WTF) in the last 20 years has been the main National venue to discuss methodologies and techniques for testing and fault tolerance, developed in the academy and in the industry.
Instruction to Authors
Regular papers must be written in Portuguese or English, and must be no longer than 14 pages, including abstract, figures, references, etc. Authors can also submit extended abstracts, no longer than 6 pages, presenting preliminary research results, new guidelines, critical views or lessons learned. All the accepted papers, revised based on the recommendations of the WTF Program Committee, will be published in the SBRC Proceedings, in the workshops volume.
Submitted papers must adhere to the format provided by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC) for the publication of articles, whose templates are available on the SBC website (http://www.sbc.org.br/documentos-da-sbc/category/169-templates-para-artigos-e-capitulos-de-livros). Figures must be preferably in vectorial format or with resolution of at least 300dpi. Papers must be submitted in electronic form via JEMS (https://jems.sbc.org.br/home.cgi?c=3452) in PDF (Portable Document Format).
